About the Author

Joy Mangano is one of the most celebrated female inventors of her time, having created and sold nearly $3 billion of product over her storied career. Beginning in her father's auto body shop, Joy invented and launched the self-wringing Miracle Mop, and she hasn't looked back. Joy has gone on to invent and launch hundreds of successful products across virtually every category, most notably Huggable Hangers, My Little Steamer, Forever Fragrant, and luggage with her revolutionary Spinball Wheel System. Dispelling myths and breaking barriers every day, Joy was one of the first in her field to harness the power of TV to connect and communicate with her customers, and today she is one of the most trusted and influential voices in her industry. Her undying promise: ideas and innovation that make life a little better and a little brighter. Joy currently appears on HSN (the Home Shopping Network), once a month, reaching more than 90 million homes live. In addition, Joy's products can be found in premier retailers such as Macy's, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Meijer, Lowe's, and The Container Store. Joy is also the owner of acclaimed fine dining restaurant Jema in Long Island, New York, and is the founding director of the Joy Mangano Foundation.
